A few months ago I was throwing a football, when I planted

Customer Question

A few months ago I was throwing a football, when I planted my right leg something popped. That night I could barely walk and got feverish with severe chills. I took it easy for a few days and it became tolerable. Now I did something a few days ago and I'm right back where I was when it happened. Crazy pain in back of knee on the outside of knee. Can't straighten leg or bear weight . terrible pain behind knee, like a baseball is stuck back there . any thoughts or recommendations ?
